  2. [all variants] Re: 11.04 overheats and shuts off machine on elitebook 8540w

    I am still having this problem now with 11.11. Unsure if the aspm_pcie=force has worn off or if I am just seeing higher workloads. I haven't seen it happen often but it still does during long high...
  3. [all variants] Re: 11.04 overheats and shuts off machine on elitebook 8540w

    I also turned off the fingerprint reader and bluetooth in the bios which reduced power consumption by another watt or two. Unclear why the fingerprint reader would use so much power especially when...
  4. [all variants] Re: 11.04 overheats and shuts off machine on elitebook 8540w

    Thanks for that tip, it did indeed seem to reduce power consumption. It seems like the effect wears off though after a suspend/resume cycle.

    I also notice that now powertop shows my fingerprint...

    [xubuntu] Re: default font control for applications?

    I have discovered a better fix. Launching xfsettingsd causes all apps to be skinned (fonts and all) identical as if running under the xfce session. This repairs the font sizes in all apps, and also...

    [xubuntu] Re: default font control for applications?

    I've partially fixed the problem by changing the default font in the gtk theme. There still seems to be something up with the font sizes though. I changed the font size to 6pt, which makes them...

    [xubuntu] default font control for applications?

    [ubuntu] Re: HP EliteBook 8540w

    Nope... never fixed it. Machine still uses gobs of power. It seems that not enough people use this notebook (especially under Linux) to care about it (HP included). According to some sources the...

    [ubuntu] Re: HP EliteBook 8540w

    Overall the Elitebook 8540w is the worst linux notebook I've ever had. Excessive power consumption and heat may be a current linux problem (unclear), but it is also plagued with random failures to...

    Same machine?

    Do you mean 10.10, or are you running an alpha of 11.10?

  16. Re: increasing maximum number of applications in browser?

    Upon further investigation it appears that the issue is that the last row of applications is not being displayed in the list.

    This appears to be a bug and not a setting. Not sure how this got...
  17. increasing maximum number of applications in browser?
